real magick, the fabric of the universe

…believed to be the most geometrically complex and aesthetically beautiful structure in mathematics, the 4_21 polytope is the algebraic form at the centre
of a universal theory of everything. Originally described in the late 19th century, 4_21 models all interactions and transformations between known and postulated sub-atomic particles. It is the 21st century equivalent of the proto-scientific art of alchemy – where the transmutation of elements was the most elusive mystery of the universe. The theory is an attempt to reconcile one of the fundamental unsolved problems in physics: unify quantum physics and gravitation in hopes of ultimately explaining the fabric of the universe…

this rendering of the 4_21polytope was done in illustrator to an accuracy of 1/10,000th of a millimeter, a feat which has never before been achieved due to technical difficulties… go figure i didn’t even know it existed until now
